Short Description: Have you ever wondered why faeries can be so hard to find? Why, it’s because of their woodland camouflage! They wrap leaves around themselves to stay hidden and work wild magic. I think we should have some faerie camo too! Don’t you?
Gauge: Work 24 sts and 32 rows to measure 4×4” in St stitch using US 4 (3.5 mm) needles with MC. Note: gauge is a little tighter than DK because I went down in needle size. This achieves a nice tight fabric, which is great for intarsia!
Finished Measurements: 24” H x 82” W
Materials Used: DK weight yarn such as:
Lorna’s Laces Honor, 100 g – 275 yds – 251 m, 70% baby alpaca 30% silk. MC: Chocolate 36NS (Brown) 4 skeins. CC1: Cedar 7NS (Green) 1 skein.
Needle Size: US 4 (3.5mm) circular needles 24” or 29” long
Other Details: This shawl is knitted flat using stranded intarsia method. I.e: carry the brown yarn along as you knit the green stitches taking care to twist or wrap the yarn being carried along every few stitches to avoid big “floats” in the back. Shawl starts at the outer left point and is worked to the center, using chart A. Then, chart B is worked out to other point. 3 chunky tassels are added at the end to add some weight.
